Melodic Today is the third compilation album in the same amount of years to come from Melodic. Melodic's roster includes the likes of Pedro, L Pierre, Baikonour, Topo Gigio, Wren and Department Of Eagles as well as a few other aces up it's sleeve. In the past, Melodic has given us some of the most beautiful instrumental music around and the label's roster is widening in breadth and also in vocal talent which culminates in a compilation more eclectic than ever. A sumptuously varied bag of offerings, Melodic Today includes both brand-new work from exciting forthcoming releases, as well as tracks from previous/deleted vinyl-only releases. Kicking things off is the new Manchester synth-rock combo Working For A Nuclear Free City who we guarantee you'll be hearing a lot more about soon. Following this, there's a taster from Jean Emmanuel Krieger aka Baikonour, and then Department Of Eagles from Brooklyn, NY. Short, but incredibly sweet is Hebden Bridge's very own Gnac, followed by Manchester acoustic songwriter John Stammers. Next follows Transelement -- possibly the most exciting thing ever to come out of Colne, Lancashire and one of John Peel's faves. Dungen hail from Sweden and produce tunes with a hippy rock swagger that created the brilliant album Ta Det Lugnt. After his recent Fear & Resiliance remix album where the likes of Four Tet and Dangermouse among others took on remix duties, Pedro comes at us with perhaps his finest track to date in "Lung." Next up is a bit of deep Detroit house from DNCN. Newest Melodic signing Wren provides the most perfect description of folktronica with "Me & My Army." L Pierre delivers the most soothing track on the album before Frenchman Topo Gigio gets us all trippy. Finally "Photographs" from Ireland's Hulk gently closes the proceedings perfectly.
